stevens sent repeated cable to washington about security fears, even on september 1-11, the day he and three others were killed. why did the white house wait so long? what impact will the new documents have in the final debate? >> they're going to impact the final result. certainly it will be part of the final debate. look, now -- the president wants to play semantics on this, whether you put a word here or word there. fundamentally the mistake this administration made was trying to pretend and tell the world that terrorism was quelled in north africa and across the dangerous spots of the world. it's rampant and reared its ugly head and the administration is trying to hide that. when poor embassador stevens sent cables saying it's real, it's here, they shoved him under the table. shame on the president and shame on the state department. >> can we expect mitt romney to be aggressive about the benghazi it attack and ask about the video? >> i don't know what he's going to ask him but i will say he was kind of shocked when the president lied about having referred to the attack at a rea

of ams am -- ambassador chris stevens here is how he wrapped up his resolve. >> obama: no act of terror will ever shake the resolve of this great nation. alter that character or eclipse the light of the values that we stand for. >> bill: right. so the idea that then these republicans -- i understand the romney campaign because you know, they were so embarrassed by this whole thing because mitt romney made a fool of himself. i understand but for the media to give it any credence whatsoever, for the media to report on it, as abc news and cbs did last night and i'm sorry -- i saw cbs and nbc. i don't know what abc did. they probably did the same thing they are irresponsible. totally, totally irresponsible. the fact that president obama did not say the words peter what happened yesterday in benghazi was an act of terror. i mean do you have to say those specific words in order to get credit for calling it an act of terror? no! come on! let's not parse every single word. we're not third graders. again, i understan

. this is the aftermath of that attack. on september 14, the bodies of chris stevens and two others were returned home. their coffins were met at andrews air force base and that is where we pick up the story of tyrone woods father. he was there as well. he recounted to the president and secretary of state. here is part of his interview. >> when he came over to our little area, you know, i could tell that he just mumbled that he was sorry. his face was looking at me. his eyes were looking over my shoulder like you could not look me in the eye. it was not a sincere i am really sorry that your son died. he was totally insincere with the i'm sorry. it was like shaking hands with a dead fish. you know, it just didn't feel right. now it is coming out but apparently the white house situation room was watching our people die as this was happening. when i heard that this morning, this is something i was really upset with. i hope that the country does not forget this. hillary came over and she did the same thing. she separately came over and i gave her a hug and shook her hand. she did not appear to be one bit
a mile away asked for permission to help ambassador chris stevens there and they were told to stand down twice. they ignored those orders and they went anyway by the time they got there the compound was under fire. it was on fire, as well. they evacuated those who remained. they went back to the annex. they then requested military back-up. they were denied. hours later when it was all over former navy seals woods and glen doherty and sean smith and chris stevens all were dead. the president was asked about all of this. molly henneberg is live in washington with that part of the story. >> molly: he was asked twice about it. three pleas for help being denied as the embassy was under attack. he didn't answer directly but did say his administration is trying to find out what happened that day and also track down the people who carried out the attack. >> nobody wants to find out more what happened than i do. we wanted to to make sure we get it right. particularly i have made commitment to the families as well as the american people. we're going to bring those folks to justice. we'll gather fa

douglas stepped out and forward dominic john paul stevens to replace them. in his hearing he was not asked a single question about abortion because he was not part of a political dialogue in the way that later became. the big issue, big change began in 198 1980 that goes with the election of ronald reagan ronald reagan brought with them to washington a very underrated figure in a recent american history, somehow i don't think gets his due as an important person. that's edwin meese because edwin meese at first was in flash and then attorney general. said look, there has been a liberal agenda at the supreme court. there needs to be a conservative agenda at the supreme court. what was that agenda? expand executive power and end racial preferences, speed up execution, welcome religion into the public sphere, and above all, reverse roe v. wade and allow states once again to ban abortion. a big part of the reagan revolution was the arrival of washington of a group of young and committed conservative lawyers who wanted to work in that, on behalf of that agenda, who were two of the best and the br

. there are now four justices in their 70s, route bader ginsberg and steven breyer were appointed by president clinton. scalia and kennedy are both 76 appointed by reagan. when asked presidential politics do not impact their decisions about when they will retire but it's highly likely the next president is going to have the opportunity to make multiple nominations. weeks ago governor romney said this about the supreme court, quote i hope to appoint justices for the supreme court that will follow the law and the constitution and it would be my preference that they reverse row v wade. many watchers say a second term for president obama would reach further left to future nominees. >> he may reach out for someone who doesn't have a track record for judicial opinions. someone who is serving in politics who doesn't have that long pedestrian today kraoe of writing jew judicial decisions, but who the president will be fairly confident will share his positions on liberal issues. >> it doesn't matter how much the president vets any tomorrow knee, once on the bench it's a lifetime appointment and they as
the attack that killed ambassador stevens and three other americans. for example, they say that ambassador stevens used to jog almost daily, frequently with his security detail. but that the -- according to their sources they say, a pro-gadhafi facebook website posted a stacked photo of stevens and also a threat against him. so he stopped temporarily stopped for about a week. and then he went back again. here's what congressman daryl issa tells cnn. >> all indications are the ambassador was not reckless and took the advice always of his security forces including sometimes when they said meetings needed to be canceled. so i think this is a failure of intelligence, a failure of security and a failure of judgment. but not of the now-deceased ambassador. >> and, wolf, there are other incidents in fact we've been reporting on them all along that they note. one was an assailant blowing a hole in the security perimeter at the north gate of the benghazi mission tworks rocket propelled grenade rounds were fired at the benghazi office of the red cross. and finally the most serious probably was other
, not only at our post but at our annex. and we couldn't find ambassador stevens. and we were trying desperately to figure out what had happened to him and to shaun smith and the others who were there. so it was an intense, you know, long ordeal for everybody at the state department and in libya. >> now, i know the investigation is going to play itself out. >> right. >> but in the short-term, the state department officials and diplomatic security admit that requests for security were denied because they said that it was adequate based on the threat level. did you get that intelligence about the threat level? or was this a bad security decision? >> you know, elise, one of the things we're going to explore in the accountability review that i have ordered is exactly what happened. and what can we do to make sure that we learn lessons from it. nobody wants to get to the bottom of this more than i do. i knew chris stevens. i've had a chance to meet the families of the other three men who we lost. i take this very personally. so we're going to get to the bottom of it. and then we're going
from chris stevens was his concern about security at the consulate. i don't expect the president to know when 16 people are moved in or out or something like that. but i certainly expect him to know in his daily intelligence brief that things were deteriorating in benghazi to a terrible degree. and then, of course, when it happened, we saw all this business of spontaneous demonstrations, which anyone with any knowledge knew -- by the way, the cia station chief in benghazi's first message back was that this was a terrorist attack and we all knew and they knew that there was an al qaeda-affiliated organization there. this is really an unacceptable screw-up and obviously the president should have known better. >> let's talk about the debate tonight because you're unique in this regard. you've debated both mitt romney when he was seeking the republican nomination, you won. you debated the president when you were the republican nominee. he won that. i'm going to play a couple of clips of you debating both of these individuals four years ago. >> my hero is a guy named tedly roosevelt.
communications between ambassador stevens and the state department. >> at a time most americans would want to rally around our country at the death of four americans serving our country instead we've had this bizarre response which only leads me to believe, number one, there was gross negligence or incompetence involved or this administration doesn't want all of us to realize that libya may now be a failed state if the fbi agents who are well-trained can't even make it into benghazi. >> with growing calls for ambassador susan rice resign over her comments that benghazi was a demonstration spun out of control had strong defense this weekend by senior obama cam main advisor. >> i was shocked to see representative king attack ambassador rice because she was acting on the intelligence given her to the intelligence community. to say she should resign, she is one of the most remarkable splendid public servants that is thoroughly irresponsible. >> reporter: two final observations about axelrod's comments. number one, susan rice went way beyond the assessment here given by the director of national
of the aisle. >> brian: we listened to it on radio yesterday. it sounds like steven colbear or jon stewart it sounds like a total comedy nothing to do with either side. >> steve: they feature three people from wall street, evil villians. >> brian: madav and ken lay. >> steve: all indicted and dealt with by the bush administration. >> brian: i clicked on the wall street scandal cards. >> gretchen: one word. distraction. maybe that's why they are doing? >> brian: i whan you mean. i wasn't paying attention. >> gretchen: looking at your ties. >> steve: all for breast cancer awareness month. october. >> gretchen: let's get headlines. a man wearing a bullet-proof vest and flame retardant pants. arrested in the los angeles international airplane. he was stopped by custom agents after arriving from a flight from japan. they found smoke grenade and hatchet and body bag and knifes and more. he was heading home to boston. investigators are trying to figure out what he was to do with those things. did cia have a double agent inside of al-qaida. he is a former radicical. and he teamed up to the cia. st
a minute. we should follow the lead of chris stevens -- >> i'm happy, i'm happy to discuss it with you. >> talking about what he said day after the attacks. nobody is criticizing him what is he saying now except except the obama campaign. >> well, i'm just telling you that from the beginning of this issue, before any facts were known he was cravenly trying to exploit it. look, that is politics. i understand that chris. i understand the whole deal. we're in the last three weeks of a campaign. of course governor romney will be out there talking about this issue but the president's concern, the president's concern is to get to the bottom of it. to bring terrorists to justice. martha: well, very interesting exchange on "fox news sunday". after all that, david axelrod did promise that the white house would investigate why the state department rejected diplomats request for more security there. we'll get into more of that a little later. bill: we'll see if this comes up tuesday night. he was pennsylvania's longest serving senator. this morning the country remembers arlen specter. he passed a
shots, explosions have been heard, as well. ambassador stevens who is currently in benghazi an four personnel are in the safe compound haven. they are providing security support. this is before they knew the ambassador and three others had been killed. >> brian: they went to a safe house and then this came down. embassy claimed the group claimed responsibility and has called for an attack on embassy tripoli. they knew attacks were going to come there way. they knew they weren't be able to defend themselves. and here is vice chairman of the select intelligence committee. he has been asking these. state department has ignored the requests. he was listening to our show and heard it for the first time. he said this. >> we have been asking the state department for these specific e-mails for weeks now. they refused to give them to us at this point. we knew from the intelligence community that the group a claimed responsibility for the attack. now, does that mean they were responsible for it? you never know but they claim responsibility. so alshariea is an al-qaeda affiliate. so if not dir
stevens was in benghazi to negotiate a weapon's transfer and to get sa sevens out of the hands of extremist. the state department dismissed that idea to me it makes why he put himself in the volatile area on the lenth anniversary of the 9/11 attacks. >> not only put that position and visit to be low key and it was not well known he was in benghazi because there would have been more of a security presence there. was there insider information that leaked that the ambassador was in benghazi? based on ongoing reporting on fox. september 6th. a libyan vessel arrive indeed turkey with a large shipment of shoulder fire missiles. five days later, the u.s. ambassador is in benghazi and meeting with the turkish diplomat in benghazi. why did they want to keep the visit low key when they knew repeatedly from the people on the ground that security was the achilles heel? i don't know. it will unfold and one of the issues that come to the surface is the movement of the weapons. >> katherine, you have done stellar reporting on this and i appreciate your uncovering details. >> i think it is imp
, the pentagon and fbi that an attack was underway and that ambassador stevens was in the compound. just two hours later another e-mail indicated the libyan extremist group claiming responsibility for the attack on social media websites. >> so what you saw in the e-mails in that realtime was a real description and if you noticed, there was no talk of demonstrations or other things. and it was clearly very early identified with a terrorist affiliate of aqim. >> reporter: clinton said "cher picking a document does not tell the whole story. an initial claim of responsibility is not solid evidence." >> posting something on facebook is not in and of itself evidence. and i think it just underscores how fluid the reporting was at the time and continued for some time to be. >> reporter: the group denied being responsible the next day. in fact, intelligence officials do not believe this libyan group is solely responsible. a u.s. government official tells cnn that the latest intelligence suggests a core group of suspects that launched the initial part of the attack on the mission was somewhere between
in for backup or go into this area where chris stevens and his staff were being attacked. on two different occasions they were told to stand down and to not go in there. defense secretary leon panetta said we simply didn't have enough information for individuals to go into that zen. what do you make of all of this? >> we're in the stage now of conflicting explanation by the administration. we are long past the point of confusion about what happened on the terrorist side. we know it was a planned terrorist attack. this mohammed video explanation which was always foolish is out of the picture. but now the administration is saying different things. this fox report about the cia denying additional help telling its agents there to stand down was contradicted yesterday by the cia itself. so general petraeus is saying it wasn't the cia who denied the request for additional assistance, implying it was somebody at a higher level of authority. and the point you make about defense secretary panetta is also important. jason chaffets, congressman from utah said last night on the hannity show that he sp
, president ford nominated john paul stevens to replace him. in his confirmation hearings, he was not asked a single question about abortion because it was not part of the political dialogue in the way that it later or became. um, the big issue, the big change began in 1980, of course, with the election of ronald reagan because ronald reagan brought with him to washington, um, a very underrated figure in recent american history, someone who i don't think gets his due as an important person, and that's edwin meese. because edwin meese at first as an adviser and then as attorney general said, look, there has been a liberal ayen da at the supreme court -- agenda at the supreme court, there needs to be a conservative agenda at the supreme court. what was that agenda? expand executive power, end racial preferences intended to assist african-americans, speed up execution, welcome religion into the public sphere and, above all, um, reverse roe v. wade and allow states once again to ban abortion. a big part of the reagan revolution, um, was the arrival in washington of a group of young and committe

[ ding ding ] it is the politico piece. in the end it's mitt. >> he's really not ready. [ ♪ "jeopardy" theme ♪ ] >> stephanie: with republicans everywhere wondering what happened to the campaign, people offer a simple explanation. it is candidate himself. politico has talked to dozens of republicans about this topic many raising massive amount of money to support it. few would talk to discuss their candidate appraisals of romney. you have to know the room and he doesn't know the room. republican who donated to romney and wants him to win. he's missing the normal guy gene. that's evident. look at his painful references as athletics as sport or his call for referees to return to the nfl playing fields. it is not how factory workers in ohio talk. who said that? >> ann romney. >> stephanie: another good guess
and steven and i worked very hard to get obama elected in 2008. and i will support him. and i will vote for him this year. because i think that the alternatives is a nightmare. however, i do disagree with several things that the president has been stating. i mean -- >> such as? >> which military judge will go against the commander in chief when the commander in chief, obama, declared publicly on television that bradley manning had broken the law. who is going to go against the commander in chief? come on. let's get real here. >> well, i know -- you bring up a point that leads me right into my next question. his case heads to court in february. how confident are you that he can get a fair trial? >> there's not going to be a fair trial here. >> let me ask you this. why won't there be a fair trial? because there may be a lot of people like you who support him. >> do you think that being tortured for ten months is going to result in a fair trial? a fair trial by military judges, who will not go against the opinion of their commander in chief? does this sound fair to you? >> graham nash brin
of chris stevens and three other americans house committee is set to hear testimony this week by the american security officers to tell congress the pleas for the enhanced safety measures in libya in days leading up to 9/11 were rebuffed by the higher-ups at the state department in washington. >> my understanding that there were requests made and the requests were denied. >> that tracks with the account offered to cbs news today by the former head of the u.s. special forces team in libya. >> so all the experts on the ground are telling headquarters at the state department we need this. the answer kept coming back as -- >> you've got to do with less. for what reasons i don't know. >> the f.b.i. was on the ground there a week ago, to get as much information as we can. we need to learn from the information. >> official in charge of all personnel fax silty and operation worldwide is under secretary of state for management patrick f. kennedy, highly regarded ziller is vant who has been in the post since 2007. fox news learned that on the evening of september 12, kennedy privately b
stevens, when this happened, the first thing that came to mind is, how do we cover up the big lie? the big lie of no problems in that part of the world anymore? they we have somehow magically succeeded. in an effort to cover up the big lie, you have the daily lyings on the terrorist issue and the president goes, we know they knew it was terrorism within the first day. and yet, the president goes to the u.n. and says video, video, video. >> sean: they said it was spontaneous, lie. they said it was video, lie. the libyan president told us in day 1 and intelligence told them. the state department is saying, we knew it had nothing to do with the video. we knew it wasn't spontaneous. we have a major problem here. let me go back to biden and to this debate, for just a second here. because they have sequestered this guy for over a week now, preparing him, you know, i guess, you know, filling his head full of zingers, as they like to say, one-liners. you know, isn't there weakness? nobody in the media seems to be able to figure this out that they have a four-year record. it's a failed record. no m
christopher stevens. there's still a push to learn about security concerns in the days and weeks that led up to the assault. but tonight, new questions emerging about the initial response from the white house. first, telling the american people the attack was a spontaneous reaction to a youtube video critical of islam and that of course turned out not to be true with the obama administration admitting days later it was in fact a pre-planned terrorist attack, and now growing allegations and the white house deliberate deceived the public. >> either they're misleading the american people or critically incompetent. there was no way with anybody looking at all, that an attack based on a riot that never occurred. there was no riot at all. to say that you're very incompetent or misleading. >> harris: the white house saying their response all along had been based on what they'd been told by the intelligence community. and senior advisor david axelrod says there's nobody more concerned about figuring out what happened than president obama. >> look, we want to get to the bottom of it. the first order
the waters or not over the weekend, one thing is clear the cables that went up from ambassador stevens himself about the rise of islamic extremenism his concern about security in benghazi. even on the day that he died hours before he died, we're clear we reported to them on friday. i want to get to one other topic; that is, iran. charles, over the weekend, take a listen to this back and forth about the "new york times" story that said the u.s. was sitting down one-on-one with iran. >> i think it's a clear indication, the regime, president obama put together with israel and many nations around the world is putting pressure on iran to sit down and finally acknowledge they cannot have a nuclear weapon. do the right thing and stop progress toward nuclear weapon. four years closer to it. what the president tried has not worked. >> charles, the white house backed away from the story. a-1 in the "new york times." what is your take on it? >> it's ridiculous. assuming it eat true and the white house is deny the calculated leak. pressure is working to make iran sit down. iran has been sitting fo
is an absolute mess. i think -- i've heard stuart stevens as saying let's focus on the economy. i think stuart stevens is exactly right. americans don't care as much in the polls about foreign policy. but several weeks later after this, i think it's very legitimate now that the press is going in and a couple of weeks have passed since the ambassador's death, now, yes. i mean, he's got a responsibility to talk about how badly the white house bungled this. >> i think he does. and indeed, you know, i think right now, the focus is a little misplaced. the notion that -- i think the white house is pretty credible in saying that they're learning more, that their initial instiblgt -- they didn't know the situation was initially, that they've explained it better as they've done intelligence assessments, but it raises the more fundamental question which is why was the consulate not secure? how was it that security issues, as opposed to their stories afterward, these are american lives at stake in an unstable region, what are the intelligence failures? what were the security failures? those are fundament
